Samsung Galaxy Gio gets un-official ICS makeover

Samsung Galaxy Gio gets un-official ICS makeover

Here we have  another firmware update for all the Samsung  Galaxy GIO S5660 users. In this tutorial we will tell you how to install Ice Cream Sandwich on Samsung Galaxy GIO S5660. But you will have  to keep in mind that this firmware is not an official one. It is a third-party custom Beta 3 Firmware. And hence, there are some possibilities for you to encounter some bugs. So read below to check out the features that may not work.   What Does Not Work Phone Camera: No supply of the picture mode FM Radio: No working of Radio Camera: Do not use flash Prerequisites Back up all contacts to SD Card Disable Anti virus and other security apps Enable the USB debugging in your phone from the path “Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging”. The USB Debugging option should be ticked. USB Debugging Mode can only be enabled once you disconnect the phone from computer Ensure that the device is left with the charge of 60% so as to ensure that the phone does not get turned Off in the middle of firmware update. Steps to Install Ice Cream Sandwich on Samsung Galaxy GIO S5660 Download the Android 4.0.3 ICS Package from the link and save it on your pc. Now you will have to connect your handset to your PC via USB cable then copy the file that you have downloaded. This file must be saved to the root directory of your phone’s SD card storage. Now turn off your handset and then reboot it to recovery mode by pressing the Center button + Power button. In recovery mode, select ‘install zip from sd card’ then ‘choose zip from sd card’. Locate and select the file from step one to begin the installation. After the above step, you will be taken back to the recovery mode. The update process won’t go any longer than few minutes. In recovery mode, select ‘wipe data / factory reset’ then ‘wipe cache partition’. After that, select ‘++++ Go Back ++++’ then select ‘Reboot System Now’ to reboot your Galaxy GIO. Finally after the reboot, go to Settings > About Phone > Firmware Version. Check if your device is running on Android 4.0.3. So that’s all with the installation. Note : Talkandroidphones is not responsible for any damage that might be caused to your device during this process though the possibility of any damage is negligible. Try this at your own risk !!!  ...

Android Recovery 101

Android Recovery 101

In Android, recovery refers to the dedicated, bootable partition that has the recovery console installed.  A combination of key presses (or instructions from a command line) will boot your phone to recovery, where you can find tools to help repair (recover) your installation as well as install official OS updates.  Because Android is open and has the recovery source code available, building a customized version with various options is relatively easy as well.  Let’s look at both options. The stock recovery is pretty limited, but that’s by design.  Its main purpose is to delete all user data and files, or to perform system updates.  Normally, both these operations are started from the running Android system, or you can do things manually and boot right into recovery yourself.  When you tell your phone to do a factory reset, recovery is what boots up and erases the files and data. Likewise with updates — when we restart to install an official OS update, it’s done in recovery.  Recovery is also where we go to manually install official OS updates we’ve downloaded from the Internet.  It’s very useful, but limited. Custom Android recoveries offer much more.  They have been coded to allow for backup and restore functions, selective deletion of data so you don’t have to wipe everything, and modified to allow update packages that have not been digitally signed by official sources.  You also can mount various partitions so that you can copy files to the SD card without having to remove it or reboot into Android. Anytime you see someone mentioning Clockwork or Amon Ra, they’re talking about custom recoveries.  Because of the extra functionality built in, they are a pretty important tool for folks who want to hack their Android phone or tablet.  Recoveries aren’t as pretty as a custom ROM and don’t get the same love from users and bloggers that custom builds of Android do, but in the end they’re even more important. Without them none of this custom ROM stuff would be possible. Thus using the android recovery is not recommend for users who are not familiar with the system. If they still want to install a new version of the Android OS , then they should wait for the official updates to come to their respective models. Source: Android Central  ...

New Buzz in Town – NFC

New Buzz in Town – NFC

What is NFC?  NFC stands for Near-Field Communication and is a set of standards (established in 2004) for small, portable devices to establish radio communications with each other. Devices need to be close, usually no more than a few centimeters apart (and often they need to touch), which is why it’s a Near-Field way to communicate. The standards cover data exchange formats defined by the NFC Forum (no, not that kind of forum) and are based on the original radio frequency identification (RFID) standards.  The forum also certifies devices like tags, cards, and smartphones. NFC embedded phones had been in the market since 2 years now but the software had not been developed to utilize them, but since the launching of Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich it s possible. Google’s Nexus is the first phone with this Android version in it, thus supporting the full functionality of the NFC chip. Android is calling this feature “Android Beam” The coolest part of all this is that only one of the devices needs to be “smart.”  Most of us has a credit card of some sort that we can tap against a payment machine, either at the gas pump or a cash register.  Both the payment machine and the credit card are NFC devices, but the card only has a string of information electronically written to a tiny chip embedded inside it.  And this is useful for other things, like starting and handling more robust communications like Wifi or Bluetooth, but most often it’s used with one of these “dumb” chips.  These dumb chips can be written with any information, and the smart device determines what happens when communication is established. Of course, what most of us here think of when we hear NFC is Google Wallet.  Google Wallet takes things a step further by using your Android phone as both a smart device and a dumb device.  When you tap your phone at McDonald’s to pay for those McNuggets, it’s simply sharing your credit card credentials like any card would.  But there’s functionality and hardware there to accept payments, track balances, provide security and more.  Right now it’s only officially available as a test on the Nexus S 4G, but it’s been hacked onto other phones with NFC hardware.  Soon, we’ll see it as a standard on Android phones.  Until then, we’ll just have to play with tags and Android Beam.

Tips to save battery on Android Phones

Tips to save battery on Android Phones

Android phones being self-intelligent devices take up a lot of battery and charge to run on a day to day basis and if not catered with care and efficiency the user may encounter problems with phones losing their charge rather quickly and hence not making up to a capable smart phone. One of the other hand issues of force close is also eminent with a lot increasing battery usage, while longer processing in an android smart phone causes extensive memory usage and hence many people have force close malfunction. One of the most initial things a person can do is use the power widget which potentially helps in controlling the flow of power usage inside an android phone itself. There are quite a few methods to get this done but since I am presuming that the reader is a relatively new android user I would tell the easiest of ways to do so. Open you android phone to a clear desktop screen with no icons of any applications or widgets Tap and keep pressing the screen until a drop down menu does not pop up. (This usually happens if the screen is held being pressed for 3 seconds or more) Tap the widgets icon, 2nd from the top of the menu Scroll down in the next opened menu until you come across power options Tap the options icon to access the widget on your screen A bar with tap on buttons would potentially be enabled on your screen with options ranging from  enabling and disabling Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, USB support and one any other feature that sucks up charge of an android phone With this widget you can practically switch on and off any of the mentioned functionalities of the phone so that it does not juice up the android charge within a few hours. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS are the main reasons that a phone uses up most of its charging and the battery gets over within 24 hours, so if you are a new android user and are looking a way to find a battery saving solution close up these mentioned capabilities if you are not using them at the moment, while when you would want to reuse them just enable them from the Power widget. Another aspect of the android phones that potentially eats up a smart phones charge is its brightness factor. If you are an efficient android user then you must clearly want to put your brightness factor a bit low as brightness in an android phone is practically the sole reason people often have the battery issue. To counteract such a problem all a user need to do...
